Classical - Paul McCartney / EMI Classics
Album Release Date: 18.Oct.1999
Released just one month after the release of his all-out rock and roll album Run Devil Run, Working Classical was another example of Paul re-contextualising his back catalogue, this time in an orchestral setting. Familiar songs include ‘My Love’ and ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’. But the album also saw Paul introduce some new pieces, such as ‘Spiral’ and ‘Midwife’, working alongside the London Symphony Orchestra and the musicians and arrangers Richard Rodney Bennett and Jonathan Tunick. The wordplay of the album's title was a way of making clear that despite his lofty ambitions, Paul was still a man of the people and hadn't forgotten where he came from. Once again, the album was a huge success in the classical charts.
